Maini Sorri SmileRead my interview on Gaydarnation or see below:

Interview on Gaydarnation Radio,  UK January 19 2011

Swedish artist Maini is gearing up to release her new electronic dance single ‘Let Me Do Your Time’, arranged by techno master Piyasiri.

We spoke to Maini about her music and how it puts people in the right mood.

So tell us a bit about the new single ‘Let Me Do Your Time’ – what can we expect?
It is a catchy track with a great dance background by Piyasiri. It is a song to love and to sing along to. I’m sure that the video will put a smile on your face.

What are you most proud of about the single?
As soon as people hear the intro, it puts them in the right mood. [Smiles].

You recently released an EP in the UK – tell us a bit more about that…
My EP Someday featured pop ballads. I was happy with all great reviews I got and for being on Music World Radio’s Top 20 charts for 16 weeks so far. Someday recently stayed at number one for three weeks.

So, when did you first realise you had musical talent?
When I was three years old, our family visited an old lady who had a toy piano and I loved to play on it. When I came home, I became interested in the big piano we had at home. At eight, I began to write piano music.

Do you like to draw on your own experiences when you make music?
When I write songs, I always get a strong feeling that must come out, and the music and the lyrics come to me. Yes, my own lyrics are about feelings I have felt. But often I use lyrics that people have sent to me, hoping that I would compose the music. The lyrics of ‘Let Me Do Your Time’ are by Gary Cornman from the USA.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
The best advice I’ve been given was from a friend who suggested I begin to write songs. I only wrote  piano music ’til I was 17.

The new single is very club-friendly – do you go out clubbing much yourself?
Music and skiing practice take up most of my time, so I don’t have much time for clubbing. [Smiles].

“It is a catchy track with a great dance background by Piyasiri…as soon as people hear the intro, it puts them in the right mood. [Smiles].”

If we were to buy you a drink at the bar, what would you ask for?
I always stay sober and have great fun anyway. [Laughs].

Where’s your favourite place on earth?
At my computer connected to fans all around the world is a nice place to be. [Smiles].

What makes you happy?
All the great messages from fans, great reviews and airplays of my music make me happy.

What makes you angry?
When people don’t respect human rights.

Finish the sentence: A good song starts with…
A genuine feeling and something you want to share.

It ends with…
Hopefully a nice melody and great lyrics that can make people happy or comfort them when they are sad.

What are your plans for the single and beyond?
I hope this single will get lots of listeners all around the world. I have recorded several new songs that I am going to release. I have also recorded a new single with my Italian and Swedish band Sorriso.

Anything to add?
Let’s be kind and loving to each other.

Maini - Let Me Do Your Time cdcoverReview by The Tea Room Music, UK  January 17 2011

“Maini’s new single ‘Let Me Do Your Time’ is a good example of Euro club music- within seconds of the song beginning, you can imagine yourself dancing away in Ibiza. The music is fairly strong – there is a heavy techno background to it with a good melody, composed by Maini herself. The production and arrangement is fantastic and makes the instrumental parts of the track highly enjoyable”..

Someday cdcoverMAINI SORRISOMEDAY EP: Scandinavian singer-songwriter Maini Sorri sings English translations of Finnish originals. As she seeks to become more widely known in the UK, Sorri releases her Someday and hasn’t anything to be apologetic for (pardon the play on words!). Combining pop and folk elements with a vaguely Corrs meets Carpenters meets Abba sensibility, Sorri’s material is classic sounding and European embracing. There’s a keen sense of melody, a lovely voice to deliver the romantic lyrics (whether hopeful or downbeat) and an appreciation for classic song-writing values. Admittedly, there’s a Radio 2 vibe attached to it, but with Celtic influences hinted at on a track like I Am Leaving and a Corrs/Cranberries style of delivery to enhance the vocals on the title track, this is a pleasant enough listen that passes the time amiably.
Rating: 3 out of 5

Someday cdcoverEP Review: Someday – Maini Sorri by Piers Ford 30 September

Someday: deceptively simple lyrics combine with melancholic undertones to generate an ABBA-esque frisson

Not everyone can take a quirky little ditty and make it credible. It takes sincerity, a deal of musical sensibility and a belief in the ultimate message of a song that is probably greater than the sum of its parts. Maini Sorri seems to have the ability in spades. How about this for a couplet?

“Truth is you were selfish and a phoney.

I shouldn’t have trusted you and your baloney.”

It’s one of my favourite snippets from her new EP Someday, a small collection of five songs that frequently reveal a melancholy undercurrent beneath their whimsical lyrics and well-crafted melodies. Does that sound reminiscent of a certain other Scandinavian outfit? I’m not suggesting that there are huge similarities between Sorri’s work and the nuances of Benny and Bjorn’s finest numbers. But in the deceptive simplicity of lyrics that can sound banal, even childlike, at the first hearing before they work their way under your skin, and the layered arrangements, guitar-driven and piano-based, with their minor accents, it’s impossible not to detect a hint of ABBA’s mastery of the accessible pop tune with the dark back story.  And it’s no surprise that she cites Agnetha Faltskog as one of her main singing influences.

Sorri is a Finn who lives mainly in Sweden and is gifted with a pure, crystalline voice that easily covers the ground between pop and the more mainstream reaches of modern folk. Her accent – more shades of that ABBA-like appeal – gives these songs an air of innocence, a lack of guile, that surely belies her all-round musical strengths. She knows exactly what she’s doing and the sound she wants to achieve, and the result is a modest little box of jewels, from the catchy, twinkling intro of the title track (don’t be fooled, it soon gets elemental and philosophical, and has its eye on the great hereafter) to the gently contemptuous “I Shouldn’t Have Trusted You” (source of the baloney reference) and the sadly defiant “I Am Leaving”, which is also offered in Finnish as “Lahden Yksin”.

My first thought on playing “Someday” was that it has a certain Eurovision quality – in a good way. I don’t know if Sorri has tried her luck yet in the Finnish or Swedish selection processes for the contest, but reading her thoughtful and intelligent blog posts on the subject, I wouldn’t be surprised if she has ambitions in that direction. With a growing following – not just in Europe but also in the US and Canada – this could be a prime time for her to make that particular move.

“The Art Of a Torch Singer”

Someday cdcover“SOMEDAY”,  by MAINI SORRI, on Reya Music, Review in County Times

Released next Monday, this EP has five songs by Scandinavian singer songwriter and composer Maini Sorri, who has been making a name for herself right across Europe and beyond.

With a Finnish background, Sorri has lived for most of her life in Sweden, but has also worked with an American songwriter and an Italian artist on various projects. These have  included the Sorriso band, which released an EP last January.

The new EP opens with a springy “Someday”, which is also to be released individually as a single. It’s followed by the more interesting “I Am Leaving”, and the sweet Euro sound of “I Shouldn’t Have Trusted You” with some amuzing phrases and rhymes. “Like An Angel” sounds a little rushed but is still fine before the final song in Finnish “Lahden yksin” and your guess as to what  it’s about is as good as mine. Still the band works hard and the set is well produced to introduce Sorri for British music fans.

I am back!

maplepathSummer is gone, it is now Autumn in Sweden. How my summer was ? Yes thanks, it was fine. I have worked very much with the Church Parliament election but now the election is over and I have finally more time for music and for my blog posts!

My trip to Finland was great, the weather was wonderful. For the third time, without planning it, I ended up in Tampere just that special night that is called the Night of Arts. I went to several concerts, it was a warm lovely night with Nordic light, so it was really wonderful. To sit in Tampere cathedral and listen to a beautiful soprano the last thing that night was great.

Proud Mum and babiesWhat happened to those young Golden eyes that I told about? The day after I wrote my blogpost about them there were only three of them left.  But those three made it through all dangers for young birds, and grew up and became more and more look a likes of their mother.

It is so funny that they really did recognise me. When I came to their little lake and called them they always came to me. They developped a kind of swimming style that made it possible for them to stay on the same spot without floating away so they could listen to everything I said without moving at all.  Their mother had left the lake for a long time ago and maybe I could be some kind of mother for them for a little while every day. When we had “talked enough” for that day they swam away and I continued my walk in the forest.

Wise Young OwlWhat about the owl? I was so certain about that the owl didn’t get any young birds last summer because I hadn’t seem them and I always find them if they are there. No one else had seen them either. That is why it was a big suprise for me that I met a guy in the forest yesterday that told me that he had seen the owl with 2 young birds high up in a tree  in June. It was nice to hear because it means that the pair of owls still like our City forrest and are certainly coming back even next year. I just can’t wait. I love those grey feather balls:)

Of course I am planning new music projects and I have already been recording in studio. I will very soon upload a new video here. I have written 8 new songs to lyrics by Gary Cornman from USA. Thank you Gary for great lyrics and for great team work!

Have a nice Autumn! And if the season is Spring in your country I wish you a nice Spring!
